It’s the time of year when people everywhere are dusting off the fairy and dressing the tree. There’s a mad rush at the shops for those must have presents and time seems to fly by faster than ever. By the time Christmas Eve arrives Santa’s sherry is at serious risk as the Christmas rush catches up and you need a little pick me up before the big day.
It’s important to remember that Remembrance Day, or Armistice Day, is not just about wearing a poppy; although that is important to a lot of people. The day itself is about a wider remembrance, as the name suggests. It’s a day when people in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth remember those people who have given their lives during conflict over the years.
